The location of the hotel is perfect, it was easy to access the metro and just move around in general. The room was way too small especially for 2 people, there was no variety in the breakfast offered, the food was not good at all.The smell of cigarette smoke in the foyer was bad. The Staff was very friendly and... More

Very good place - i would recommend. Positives: Location - not in a majorly touristy area, which I liked as it felt a bit more authentic and there were some good local restaurants, which are hard to find in Sultanahmet (the main tourist area). You can walk to the Grand Bazaar, Spice Bazaar, Blue Mosque etc and there are tram... More

Everything was perfect at this hotel. Very clean room, great bathroom, great location, walk distance from many sights, little but great pool on the roof, great view on the roof terace. Mr Etem makes your holiday at this hotel the best holiday you would ever have, he is so friendly and funny. Thanks Laleli Gonen Hotel for a perfect holiday.

The hotel is located in the Laleli part of town, which is not part of the touristy places in Istanbul. However, the area is not a bad part of town, and the hotel is about 50m from both a tram line taking you to the Blue mosque and Topkapi palace, and 50m from a metro station taking you to Taksim....

This is a great little hotel, in a fab location. Set on a very quiet side street, halfway between the Laleli University tram stop and the Veznecilar metro station, it's perfect for getting to Istanbul's main tourist sights. The hotel is a solid 3* quality: The nice breakfast room offers a hot & cold buffet. It's not a huge choice,... More

The hotel has all that is needed. All the basics are there. But there is one thing they get differentiated from others: Human factor. From Mr. Etem (Reception), down to the cleaning lady on the floor, all the guys there have a human touch, which gives you the feeling that you are in safety, you are a guest, and you... More

Staying in Grand Bazaar

Neighborhood Profile
Grand Bazaar
Tourists, hawkers, and locals come together at the Grand Bazaar to comb its labyrinthine passageways in search of a bargain – be it a pair of brand name jeans, a handcrafted silk rug, or a perfectly brewed cup of tea. Outside the vast bazaar, worn, narrow streets wind their way down from its lofty perch to the southern shore of the Golden Horn, where the evocatively aromatic Spice Bazaar beckons alongside the elegant New Mosque (opened in 1665). Nearby, the famed Galata Bridge offers pedestrian access to urban delights across the river in Istanbul’s more residential and contemporary neighborhoods, while the must-see sights of Sultanahmet are but a leisurely stroll away.
